Thank you for visiting my podcast page! This and other NEW material is NOW available from the iTunes shop! You can easily find it by entering "Owl Cat" in the iTunes Search. The SciFi Opera is a carefully selected, hand-picked troupe of actors and musicians and children who carefully recite recipes and stuff by ancient nonsense poet Edward Lear. Their first critically acclaimed CD of the most popular work also features some orginal songs and some unashamed tributes, in the context of Lear's work, to such popular artists as The Queen, Monty Python, Spike Milligan, Gilbert & Sullivan, Elvis Presley, Brian May, Mr Kipling and Status Quo. The inspiration for the work is that mysterious place discovered by Edward Lear which he called "The Great Gromboolian Plain" which hosts that most most famous of arborial legends: The Bong Tree. It is of course, the land to which the Owl and the Pussy Cat sailed. No live animals were injured in the recording of this CD. Unless you count the one playing the guitars who thought the headphones were a bit loud.
